Yeah we are def. interpreting the expression differently as I have never heard it used except when talking about the importance of being present in the moment. But in regards to what you are talking about I think that problems only go away when they are faced and traveling is not the answer. However, it does allow you to reinvent yourself and part of that is being able to forgive yourself. For me being in a foreign place allowed me to take a step back and look at myself — that can be hard at home when in a routine and pulled in a million directions.
